  • And the highest level of disappointment is finding a 10 year old stack overflow post that is exactly the problem you're having, but then discover that not only does it not have an answer but you're the one who asked it 😭

  • violently cries and sobs
  • I think you make some very good points.

    It's also important to remember that "perfect" is the enemy of "good". There will never be a perfect ally, because allies don't have the same lived experience. But (I think) that allyship is still a good thing.

  • What Is Wrong with Canada’s Conservatives?
  • I kind of agree.
    But he still seems more viable than PP. Neither is viable PP.

    JT seems like the lesser of evils.
    I wanna vote out JT so I can show the liberals that they can't just lie to us and do whatever they want.
    But I also want to keep PP out of power so I can show the PCs that we won't accept trumpian politicians who cultivate a cult of personality with empty platforms or anti-social policies.

  • Centrifuges answer the age old scientific question: "what'd happen if we spin this really fast?"

    What Is Wrong with Canada’s Conservatives?
  • The conservatives don't actually have a platform, they just have a handful of slogans. And they have a leader who is proudly ignorant, who would rather have the ability to sling accusations than learn about the subject.

    I don't want to vote for JT, but there aren't really any other options that don't result in decimating public services so that PP can let his private sector friends loot the remains. Presumably, because again he has such a vacuous platform, you just have to go by the handful of slogans he has shouted out at rallies.

  • The graying open source community needs fresh blood
  • IMO I think that's more a reflection of business decisions rather than innate programmer skill.

    Programmers used to do that because they had to do that, so the businesses valued it. Now they don't have to do that, so businesses don't allow them room to develop those skills.

    I think that rate that people actually developed unnecessary skills outside of work likely remains the same, just the skills that people desire are different to the ones from back then.

  • The graying open source community needs fresh blood
  • I've not been a dev for that long, but I've been a dev for 15y or so. For the most part it seems to me like that is an effect of business decisions; workers will learn the skills that get recognized. Which skills those are has changed over time.

    I don't see older devs have that quality particularly more then younger devs, what I see is businesses that don't value that type of behavior. And having worked with "wild West cowboy" coders before, the businesses may be right; they often make a real mess things and just rely on other people to clean up after them.

    From what I've seen, there are lots of young people who invest in themselves and have passion for the craft, when the business allows them room to grow and doesn't treat them like a code-producing machine.

  • My favorite mode of transportation is: magic portal!

    copilot prompt

    a wizard in his kitchen casting a portal to the grocery store. food sits half-prepared on the kitchen counter. through the portal you can see grocery store shelves. the wizard is able to walk through the portal to get to the grocery store

    I think what you meant was vehicle rather than transportation, but I followed the letter of the law 😜
    Specifically, I think the best method of transportation is magic portals. not technological portals, which I think would just kill and clone you. Magic gets around that problem by using... magic
    Instantaneous transportation to wherever you want is just beautiful. So good.

    It was hard to get copilot to make a portal large though to walk through, which was an annoying surprise lol

    It's weird that we enjoy stimulating our fear response

    What would aliens think if they leaned we evolved fear as a survival mechanism, but we intentionally seek out situations that trigger our fear response, for fun?

    Horror movies, extreme sports, thrill-seeking, it's all weird.

    Edit\ Changed the title and added an extra line to make it clear I'm talking about the fear response, and not specifically about extreme sports

    isekai subgenres

    Now that isekai has firmly established itself as a subgenre in western storytelling (although it has always been there in some form), it got me thinking about what to call the subgenres of isekai itself.

    If isekai itself is being transported to another world/universe, and reverse isekai is someone from another world being transported to ours... Then what do we call someone from another world being transported to another other wold? Or someone from our world being transported to another time in our world? Do these have names already?

    Setting aside if we like or appreciate isekai, if they don't have genres names yet I thought it'd be funny to come up with our own. What do you think we should call all the sub-subgenres?
